Malene Markussen on SoundBetter

Female artist and topliner who specializes in emotional pop music and EDM.

Need help on your project?
I can help you with raw female vocals, and minor toplines for your projects.

I've been doing music for about 12 years now, writing songs, singing, and performing both pop and rock music.
For the last 5 years, I've been focusing on different kinds of pop such as synthpop, EDM, ballads, and commercial pop. In addition to working on my own projects, I've helped out several artists doing toplines and vocal work on their projects.
I sing in both English and Norwegian and have experience doing several toplines in both languages.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

  1. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  2. A: Love to set stories to life. Love making something sad into something beautiful and soulful.

  3. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  5. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  6. A: I love artists such as Dermot Kennedy, Léon, Birdy, Highasakite, and Vaults. I also love how Sia and Miley Cyrus use their powerful vocals, which I enjoy including in some of my work.

  7. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  15. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  16. A: I've been writing music since I was 15 so for about 15 years. I started out writing and singing in a rock band before I started doing alternative pop music. In 2016 my path lead me to a more commercial sound. Since 2018, I've been writing and singing on other projects as well where I have experience from EDM and Pop.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: I have a very simple setup in my home studio, with Cubase and Focus Right Soundcard using a G4M- MC1 Condenser Microphone
